Mostar, a city of cultural and historical significance, has a very rich offer of events that are scheduled for the month of June. One of these events is the Mostar Summer fest- a festival that gathers musician from all around the Balkans and provides a vast display of possibilities that ensures everyone will find something for themselves.
The program that lasts two days, 29th and 30th June, and is held on the Mostar fair premises, includes numerous artists. These artists include: 29th- TRAM 11 which is Zagreb’s hip hop ensemble, Urban & 4- one of the best alt Croatian artist with his group Let3- a Croatian punk band which has held a lot of controversies and alongside them local bands such as Helem nejse, BITIPATIBI, Smooth Groove, and Nešto Između are on the line ups for one stage.
On the other stage of the same day there are: Nipplepeople, Dejan Miličević, Dj Jock, WØLT and Alen Milivojević. On the second day, 30th of June, the line up’s are : Prljavo Kazalište, Letu Štuke, Bad Copy, Ischariotzcky, prof.sterMa and Stoposto on one stage and RAMOPHONEDzIE, Kristijan Molnar, Andrej Jelic, Igor HDP and Fa11out on the other one.
This is one of the strongest line ups in the last few years which intertwine professional authors such as Prljavo Kazalište and Urban with less famous local artist such as Helem nejse and Fa11out. This will provide the optimal display of both professional and amateur sound that is favorable to everyone.
The goals for this year’s festival are, according to the organization team, to enrich the cultural scene of Mostar as a center of Herzegovina which still has no summer fest that would attract a significant number of visitors from the entire region of Herzegovina and further beyond. Mostar, as a heart of Herzegovina and a crossroad of culture through the ages, with this festival wants to give a long term image of a better tomorrow to the youth that would enjoy the music together, socialize, trade experiences and give a better tomorrow to Mostar and Bosnia and Herzegovina as a whole.
The goal is to use music as a universal language that would unite the youth, give them a push in the better direction and try to give them a reason to build and activate themselves in the society. They are sure that with the good organization of the Mostar Summer Fest and with the support that would have come in the shape of respectable music line ups will put Mostar on the festival map of the region, where next to the cultural will enrich the touristic offer of the city and will give an opportunity to the youth that show the 21st century Mostar some of the best urban music on Summer fest.
This could be seen through previous years in which Summer fest had gathered thousands of young people, all that had the goal of having some fun mixed with the wishes of new experiences and new people that enrich the lives of these young people.
